The National Cotton Planters' Associa

1833, at Vicksburg, Miss., beginning No
vember 21st, and it invites everybody in

purpose of tho association is to devise ways
and means to improve the condition ot all
agriculturists and industrialists who live
and work on southern soil, and to bring
together the manufacturers and growers of
cotton. The convention is expected to be
the most important one ever held by the
association. A great variety of subjects
pertaining to the cotton and other interests
of tho south will be presented by many gen

The Illinois Central, after having bought
several short branches extending out from
the main line at diffirent points, is now en
gaged in building two new branches in the
state of M ssissippi, one of them leading
out from Jackson, and each to be a hun
dred miles long. In this vicioity it ac
quired the Mound City mad recently, and
is now contemplating the construction of
the Wetaug ro.id. Jay Gould, in conversa
tion with a St. L uis reporter, said that he
lud in view the construction of a line from
R chie to Danville, Ills., to giin access to

are extensive and rich.
The ceiling of Mr. John Gites' saloon
aud billitrl hall presents a most artistic
appearance. It has been undergoing an
elaborate decoration by Mr. II. II. Meyer,
tho painter, and the work so far as it h is
progressed proves Mr. Meyer to be an
artist of rare talent. The cornice of the
Nrge room is represented by scroll paint
ing of a beautiful pattern, while on the
ceiling are represented four groups of
cjpids, in each group four, one supporting
each corner of a square of festoons com
posed of the rarest and most beautiful
flowers. The figures and flowers arc mar-
velously true to nature. The expressions
of the faces of the former is as nearly life
like, even when viewed with an opera
glass, as it is possible to make with brush
and paint. The flowers are equally perfect,
both as to the most delicate shades in
colors and a to forms. This work is exe
cuted, too, with remarkable rapMity, show
ing a skilled hand and a practiced eye.
Mr. Gates is justly proud of the appear

The movement inaugurated by Post
mas'' r Murphy, to get the Postmaster-general
to establish a system of receiving let
ter box- in this city is making aboutas rapid
headway in the department at Washington
as such things usually do. dpt. Thomas
has interested himself in the matter, and
his influence with the powers that be at the
federal capital is such that we may rest as
sured of a speedy realization of our hopes
of having the system established. Captain
Thomas is trying to get us a free delivery
system, to which we would be entitled by
reason of the receipts at our post-office, had
the letter postage not been reduced. The
free delivery system that is the free de
livery of letters to addrfsseea by government
carriers is directed by law to be estab
lished in all communities the business of
whose postage reaches twenty thousand
dollars or over during the fiscal year. Dur
ing the last fiscal year the receipts of the
Cairo post-offioe were seventeen thousand
eight hundred dollars, falling only two.
thousand two hundred dollars short of the
required amount. Postmaster Murphy is
onti lent that, but for the red iction in the
letter posttg--, he would have been able, at
the close "f the present fiscal year, to show
receipts to the amount of twenty thousand
dolmrs or over, whicti woxd have entitled
us to a free delivery system under the
postal laws. But it is probable certainly,
it is bin reasonable to expect that Con
gress will a.ljust the amount of receipts re
quired by any post. ffi :e in order t entitle
the community to free delivery, so as to al
low for the reduction in letter postage; aud
if congress does this, the receipts of tho
Cairo office this year will exceed the neces
sary amount. But be this as it may: we
are entitled to receiving boxes, anyhow.
The order to establish these here went forth
from tho Postmastor general some time ago,
but for e me reason not clear to us at
this distance it was recinded, and the mat
ter lett where it was before. During his re
cent visit to Washington Capt. Thomas
again broached the suoject to tho Post-ma-ter-general,
and was given reason to be
lieve that favorable actioa would soon be
Of late there have been an unusual num
bet of peddlers in the city, but they plied
their business so secreiely and they looked
so much like "cler drummer,'1 who "is det
most innocent man on dor roat, Rebecca,"
that the officers did not get onto them.
But yesterday morning Chief Myers caught
Bight ot a dandy looking chap who was just
coming away from tho rear door of a resi
dence and ho watched him and saw him
go to the rear door ot the next house. The
chief learned from the lady of the first house
that the dandy waspeddling "vermifuge"
and "worm medicine," and he captured the
man as he camo from the next premises.
"Peddling medicine?" asked the chief.
"Yes sir," said the ctrsnger. "Got a
license!" "No." "Well you need one to
follow your busiuoss iu this town." "The
h you say." We 1, you heard what I
said." ''I guess I know my business"
"Guess I know mine, too, so you may just
como along with me and we'll settle this
business?" "You're 'uofflcer? "You've
guessed it." ' Got a warrant for me?"
"Yes." "Lesseeit. "Here's my warrant,"
and the chief took hold of Mr. Dandy and
marched him down, tho street toward Mag
istrate Comings' office. After hav
ing gone a little ways the prisoner got
his mad up and expressed a desire to walh p
the chief. "How long did you want to
work this town?" interrupted the chief.
"About a week." "Well," said the officer,
"you lick me and you can stay ns long ss
you daranpleasa without a license." ".'ve
a notion to mash your head, and if I had a
brick I would." The chief marched him
up to a pile of bats near by and said, "here
you are, go in lemons;" but tho prisoner
backed out, saying that he wusnod n
fool. "Well, don't talk like one then,"
came the reply, and then both proceeded
quietly to the magistrate's office where the
prisoner gave the name of Thomas Hays,
and paid a fine of $10 and cost.
- The Argus dismisses the points made
by The Bulletix yesterday with the simple
remark that tbey cover ground that was
traversed before in the discussion of the
higher grade project. The fact that the
Argus didn't find this out until it had made
s-veral unsuccessful efforts to answer them
does not speak well tor its insight, or lore-
sight. The Argus then proceeds togive
its readers over half a column of matter
that is itself but a rehash of what it has re
peated aud re-repeated in former discussions
of the subject. It says the high grade
plan provides that owners ot low lots shall
fid them up, which is not true; the high
grade movement provides only for raising
the streets and leaves it optional with own
ers of lots to fill them up or not. The
Argus says "the place to commence filling
is where the fewest people will be incon
venienced." If the same theory had been
Carried out iu 1868 and adhered to all
along by the city council, the Fox, Howard
& Co. fill would have begun up in the Cor-
rell aud extended around the unoccupied
sipe-water lots only, while lower Com
mercial avenue would be a frog
pond to day. We believe in confering a
benefit where it will affect the greatest
number of people, and therefore do the
most good. If high grade is a benefit (and
that it is all the merchants on lower Com
mercial avenue, who were put to heavy ex
pense and much trouble to elevate their
goods last February, will admit, and the
Argus has not dared to deny) then it should
bij inaugurated where its influence will be
felt by the greatest number of people and
by the greatest interests. In view of the fact
that one of the Argus' chief arguments
against high grade has always been that
the property in the city would not bear the
expense of tilling and raising, its "dogmat
ical" statement now, that high grade
ought to be commenced where the property
is least valuable, is very amusing. The
Argus says "something more than high
grade is necessary to iaduce capitalists to
locate here." The Argus is mistaken. We
have had numerous instances of outside
capitalists refusing to locate and invest
their thousands here simply and alone be
cause our city grade was ten feet below
hign water mark, and because all argu
ment to convince them that our levees wt re
an ample protection, tailed to penetrate
their thick veil of prejudice. We have it
from Mr. Leighton Pine himself, that the
only reason why the Singer company did
not establish its two hundred and fifty
thousand dollar plow factory here was be-cau-e
of the city's low grade. The Singer
compmy knew our rate of taxation and of
treigins, knew that they Could make cer
tainly ms much, and very probably more
nj'.ney lu re than at South Bend, and SAVE
LA HOE SUMS IN FhEIOHTH YEARLY. But
low yrade in Cairo decided them in fav r
o: S''u.h B nd nd scored one more against
Ciiio. l b,; Argus "innocently" deplores
the revival "of a pn ject that whs Under
stood to be virtually dead," Btid "that sat
like a pall upon the town last summer,
paralyzing ihn enterprise and energy of
the people." The Ari;us is mis aken. The
prij-ct w;,n not dea), nd did not panlyz.j
ail) thing. The fact that the ordinance es
tabii-hing liiyh urade in a certain district
was and is in the hands nf a special j .int
committee of the council, which is to report
upon it at its leisure, and that a resolution
declaring against high Krade was defeated
in the committee (which, by the way, com
prises the mj irity of the council) ought to
prove to any sensible peron that the project
is alive and kicking, liable at any time to
come forth a glorious reality. And as to tho
project having a paralyzing effect upon en
ergy and enterprise last summer, we deny
it and challenge the Argus to mention one
instance in which, but for the high grade
movement, a house of any importance
would have been built. TbeBe are the
points made for the fortieth time by the
Argus last evening, and for the sake of tho
reading publio we hope not to be called
upon to answer them again.
